Wii U is officially the best console I ever bought

The internet browser on this thing is completely ridiculous. In fact, I'm using it right now to post this topic... while playing NSMBU at the same time!

Seriously guys, the convenience of this thing just cant be beat. One of the best pieces of hardware I've bought in years, and now that I've been experimenting around with it, I'm starting to realize why!

Sony and Microsoft fight over who's boobs look more realistic, while Nintendo is about having fun with them. :) -Walkiethroughie

It sounds like it has potential to greatly expand the community aspect of gaming.

Yeah its great for doing crap I'd rather do on my computer. Well done Nintendo!

Whatever happened to people living the actual VIDEO GAME capabilities.

I don't know, man. The one issue I always had with my computer was that it sits on my desk and can't move around with me. You could tell me to just get a laptop or a tablet, but the Wii U is priced better, and plays retail Nintendo games.

This console has a bright future ahead of it, and its all thanks to this wonderful gamepad.

If all you want in a laptop is browse the web, there are much cheaper options than the Wii-U.

So much hate on this board.


I'm loving my Wii U for the same reasons. Miiverse was a feature I didn't really expect to use, but... it's engaging. I'm compelled to use it, because it's just simply, enjoyable. And the Internet browser is a great way for me to go look something up online while I'm watching TV. I don't own an actual tablet, so this works just fine for that. It also makes it easy to pull up something on YouTube that I want to share with my family, let the video load, and then say, "Hey guys, look at this! *Switch inputs from the Gamepad*"

Though on the subject of actual video games *clears throat*, it is also fantastic. Nintendo Land is like the only example of this asymmetric gaming we have so far, but boy is it fun. I fired it up with my sister and her boyfriend the other day, expecting to play one or two rounds and then move on to something "real" (NSMB U). Instead, we wound up playing for like an hour, and then throwing in Mario Party 8, because we all picked up that "party" sorta vibe. I'm so glad to see Nintendo isn't ready to abandon local multiplayer like Microsoft and Sony have.

Lmao. I can pause the game, bring up the walk-through, find out what i have to do, then resume the game right away, I'd say that's 100 % gaming right there
